    A lot of my friend's children attend Victoria and I have heard that the teacher to child ratio is not very balanced. The school is also very commercialised and I personally do not want my daughter attending a school in the middle of the city. I feel it is always easy to pick a school for convenience, because we all worry, have a lot of errands to run, some of us work, travel time, no maids, etc. I mean there's nothing wrong with that since we all live in HK and it's one big city anyways, but I have grown up believing space, greenery, fresh air is very important. I guess its all very dependent on one's values.

    I based my priorities it on language, teacher-children ratio, environment and then proximity. Afterall its a hard choice and we really have to pick a school that suits our child's personalities. They will be the ones spending their time there - not us!

    I visited Starters, when they were still around on Tai Hang Road, and I just did not like it (based on my priorities above - too small, facilities extremely old, toilets stank, no trees), plus it is not bilingual. It is never easy picking a school in HK...

    I've met quite a few people who have sent their kids to Starters. They all rave about it. I felt it was too far for us and didn't feel comfortable putting D on the bus. Hence, didn't go visit.

    Ever thought about Rosaryhill school? They have both Cantonese and English streams to choose from and the school campus is very good in terms of outdoor space and fresh air. It is located in a very green residential area on Stubbs road. They have pre-nursery class for 2 yr olds and also playgroups if you do not want full week. They have both outdoor and indoor playgrounds as well as very pleasant, clean, well-equipped classrooms. Anyone intersted, let me know and I'll pass you the contacts.
